Dark Elhain Champion Lore

The future is never certain. None can know with certainty what could have been if one path were chosen by an individual over another, but it is possible to imagine an existence where Teleria’s greatest warriors were instead its most terrible despoilers.

Elhain is one such hero. An Elven noblewoman of Aravia, she benefited from all the advantages of her station – a complete education in both scholarly and martial arts, and being told in no uncertain terms that she was superior to the many other peoples who inhabited Teleria.

Such an attitude is not uncommon among the High Elves, but it is a seed that in some bears dark fruits. While Elhain became a hero of the Light, what would have become of her had she allowed her sense of superiority to lead her down a different path? If she met her match, might it have cut to the very core of her being?

It was during the Conclaves of the Elves that Elhain encountered a Dark Elf who seemed every bit as knowledgeable and capable as she was. Named Kael, he matched Elhain during both the negotiations and the competitions that acted as interludes between talks. Elhain became intrigued by Kael, but what would have happened if she had treated her first defeat at the Dark Elf’s hands as a personal affront?

Unable to accept that she had come off second-best, Elhain might have convinced herself that her rival had used dark magics to gain an edge. Kael’s supposed evil and duplicity seemed to be confirmed when he was later involved in an attempt to assassinate Queen Eva of Aravia. After he escaped, Elhain seized the opportunity for revenge and swore before her ruler that she would track down and slay the would-be regicide.

So began Elhain’s hunt. She sought Kael first in Durham, but after several vicious encounters, was no closer to slaying him. Frustrated beyond reason, Elhain searched for something that would give her the advantage. She dabbled in the same dark magics she believed her rival was using, becoming obsessive.

Elhain began to strike dark bargains, communing with Demonspawn and making oaths no true High Elf should ever have countenanced. One particular deal saw her surrender a fragment of her soul in exchange for a rime-coated bow whose arrows could pierce the very spirits of its targets. As her hunt stretched into decades, she finally made the most terrible deal. She realized that she needed power and longevity if she was to finally bring Kael to heel. Seeing little other choice, she embraced Undeath and through it, gave fealty to the Shadow God. In her arrogance, she believed such taint would not corrupt her. It was a tool only.

Elhain eventually succeeded in her quest. Without need for sleep or sustenance, she tracked down Kael and ended him with an arrow. Only as he fell did Elhain appreciate the depth of what she had done. Victory had become her sole reason for existence, and now that it had been won, nothing else remained.

Filled with dark ennui, Elhain might have ended her own existence over the body of her foe, but her own arrogance stopped her. She had merely done what needed to be done, or so she told herself. Siroth soothed her anguish and fed her convictions. He suggested she show everyone how much she had sacrificed, and the true extent of the superiority she had attained. She turned back for Aravia. It is fortunate indeed for the people of the High Elf nation that these events never occurred.

    @Madkat Scotii: I used 2 Dark Elhain, 1 debuffer (e.g. Stag Knight), 1 healer-reviver, and Drexthar Bloodtwin to apply HP Burn for Frost Spider dungeon (Doom Tower Boss). This team composotion makes it an easy work to clear these boss stages for both Easy and Hard difficulty.

  2. Ayumilove Post author

    @Kit: Most damage nukers shine when they are level 60, fully skilled and are decently geared. Dark Elhain is mainly use to counter heroes who applies Freeze to your allies, which allows her to trigger her passive skill to retaliate the enemy. One of the best counter against Tormin the Cold.

  3. Kit

    Dont know what you guys are doing that I a not. Got Dark Elhain up to level 50 and she is by far the weakest of my middle-tier champions. Spends more time on the floor than in battle.

  4. Madkat Scotii

    Hi, I’ve just pulled a duplicate Dark Elhain and was wondering if I should build her or use to upgrade my current champions skills?

    I’ve never got that far in Doom Tower so two Dark Elhain’s might really help me.

  5. nossant

  11. Thomas Chapman Barros-Wing

    I was kind of dismissive of her 2 years ago, down thread, but I’ve returned to sing her praises. I’ve been using Dark Elhain with a high RES, high dmg build (including 1 Frostbite set for extra fun) in my anti-Tormin Arena team for years now, and she’s just insane. I pair her with turn meter boosters (Arbiter, Lyssandra) and use ATK% boots, since you’re relying on her triggered attacks more than the attacks that happen on her actual turn. Using turn meter boosters on your team who will trigger Tormin to freeze the other team mates is a fantastic strategy. She just blasts through everything.

    I can’t explain it, but even though I’m very endgame with 60+ legendaries etc., my #1 all-time and consistent Arena Defense team is: Arbiter/Lyssandra/Uugo/Dark Elhain. No matter what nuker I put in that last slot, Dark Elhain gets the most wins EVERY week. (Maybe it’s because she draws in more attacks, since people underestimate her?)

    On Offense, I use Arb/Lyssandra/Lydia (to skip Tormin’s revive)/Dark Elhain. Can destroy teams that are seemingly undefeatable otherwise.

  12. Ayumilove Post author

    @TimCookBlows: StewGaming has made the video private on his youtube channel. I’ll add other Raid content creator videos here!

  13. TimCookBlows

    StewGaming link appears to be invalid.

  14. YoMommasBoy

    I set her up in a Reflex set and went with Offense and Support trees, going with Rapid Response, Cycle of Magic, and Lasting Gifts. Almost every turn she’s throwing her Death’s Majesty out and sometimes twice per turn. It’s unreal the damage she puts out.

  15. RelativeNewbie

    I think Dark Elhain should be 5 star in Scarab. Her a1 just rips the shield off like nothing else.

  16. inlinemike

    @Danio I have had much better luck with her in savage/cruel/helm smasher with as much crit damage as I could pile on than trying to go the stun route. I tried a stun set but killing 2-3 per freeze was far more reliable than the odd one or 2 stun.

  17. Danio

    do you think stun set + high resist is a good strategy against tormin?

  18. Johnny

    I would add to keep in mind when putting her in against a tormin, that after she removes the freeze via passive, she can still be refrozen from adding the self buffs, and as far as I can tell because the passive has already/is procc’ing, this freeze will not be removed.

  19. MonsieurNugent

    @+ I put destroy set on her. There were two key purposes:
    1. Defeat lv15 undead FW. I was struggling to take out both revivers but using d. Elhain allowed me to bring their HP down sufficiently to get the job done, albeit in 55 minutes!!!

    2. To defeat scarab king. Her default skill with destroy reduced HP sufficiently enough to bring it down.

    Clearly, I’m not end-game. Scarab in particular feels like very niche kit is required that you don’t necessarily want to put on your everyday use champs. So finding a use for destroy and d. Elhain was win win for me.

  20. Ayumilove Post author

    @Line2pk: I believe it would increase the Buff Duration except for Unkillable, Block Damage and Revive on Death.

  21. Line2pk

    The mastery Lasting Gifts, can increase duration of her buffs from passive?

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    @+: It depends on how you would want to use Dark Elhain. What is the reason to equip Destroy Set on her? Do you plan to use her against the Scarab King Doom Tower Boss or use her to reduce enemies MAX HP such as Magic Keep or Spirit Keep boss? With Destroy Set, you can reduces the enemy MAX HP really fast along with her A1 skill. However, she is best to be equipped in Savage Set to deal maximum amount of damage for Arena and Nether Spider Boss. Full Offense Set or Lifesteal Set is also good recommendation for early game. If the Destroy Set has good offense stats, it wouldn’t be a waste!

  23. *±*

    Would putting a Destruction set on her be a good idea or would it just be a waste ??

  24. RelativeNewbie

    @DemonKiller & @Korn: She gets frozen the first time and both passives proc then go on CD for a turn. She’s exactly like Heiress in that way. She has to take a turn to reset them. But if you build her properly, you may not even need to do that.

  25. RelativeNewbie

    She hits like a freight train. Even at level 50. The decrease max hp is nice little bonus for scarab but not really the point to her kit. Her a2 slams hard, then her two passives ensure that if she gets hit with a freeze, she hits back even harder. She’s probably one of the champs you do not want to build with any resistance. Let he be frozen by the Ice Golem, or Frost Spider, or Tormin, or Gurgoh, or Achak. That just means that she’ll destroy them immediately after.

  26. DorianB

    Just summoned from a blue shard.

  27. Shivaprasad Savagave

    I think she is invaluable in frost spider, due to her passive skills. I tried her with ixlimor and it was super smooth, but I did only normal. My dark elhain is only level 50 though and she is good in ice golem as well. Recommended to have her. I haven’t used books on her as I rely on passive skill for air and hasn’t disappointed me.

  28. korn

    @DemonKiller, you’re right. She gets frozen also. I wonder why when his passive say it instantly remove any freeze debuff. I encounter this when fight with someone using Tormin the Cold.

  29. Mitchell Maurer

    Is it possible to get the artifacts updated like others. Example 2 offense 1 Speed, 1 offense 1 cruel. With the way its written i can’t tell what one’s are in a group. And thank you for all your time and work to keeping this site up to date.

  30. MrBoop

    I have a question about her passive and Death Majesty. Does triggering Death Majesty from her passive put Death Majesty on cooldown (if it wasnt already) or restart the cooldown timer if it already was on cooldown?

  31. OldSchool

    @Mark D

    Fatal artifacts are only available from the Forge, and the materials are only available from Doom Tower

  32. Mark D

    the Recommended Artifacts lists “Fatal” I can’t find any artifact set called Fatal. Where do I find information on the Fatal Artifact set?

  33. alphallama

    You cant get her from legendary shards only ancient shards. they patched it so any of the login people aren’t coming out of yellows. This was an issue I personally faced getting a shaman and a jizoh from my first 2 yellows. I may be wrong but i’m pretty sure that’s what they patched for those champs. Not sure if it counts towards scyl and the trash void legos.

  34. MaxBam

    @Thegoodman : No that’s not true! I’ve got her from an ancient shard a few days ago from the 2x Acient Shard event. So it’s possible to get her from a shard.
    Have a nice day.

    @Ayumilove Awesome site, I love it, thank you for your hard work

    Dark Elhain is only available on day 120 login rewards, she cannot be summoned via a shard.

  37. Ayumilove Post author

    @Sir Badrul the Invincible: You can get summon her from Ancient Shard or Sacred Shard.

  38. Sir Badrul the Invincible

    how to get Dark Elhain?

  39. Roger Spotts

    On equipment, stat priority listed is DEF%, HP%, SPD, ACC, but on artifacts it recommends

    Gauntlets (C.RATE / C.DMG)
    Chestplate (ATK%)
    Boots (SPD)

    Since she’s an attack based champ I would assume the equipment recommendations are correct.

  40. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tom Chapman Barros-Wing: Dark Elhain is introduced to counter Tormin the Cold champion and also to help in Ice Golem’s Peak who constantly inflicts Freeze debuff.

  41. Tom Chapman Barros-Wing

    @7Heaven: She seems pretty niche for a new player to invest those resources in, in my opinion. If you have those tomes, you probably have someone who will serve you better for a long time that could use them. Or save them until you do. Dark Elhain is kind of a solution to 1 or 2 very specific problems.

  42. 7Heaven

    Is she worth spending epic skill tomes on? Got her recently, have 7-8 of them, new player

  43. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ecthelion: Keep both of them. They are great against Tormin team whenthey are equipped with Immunity Sets to retaliate when their allies gets Frozen.

  44. Ecthelion

    Is it worth keeping too Dark Elhains? Or should I use her to increase skills?

  45. James

    Does anyone know if Veins of Ice can proc Wisdom of Battle? The idea being a counter for Tormin (i.e., Tormin freezes her, Viens of Ice removes the freeze, Wisdom of Battle applies block debuffs and she can’t be re-frozen).

  46. Eccum

    Isn’t she an Ice Golem killer? Like all of her passives counter what the ice golem is doing. A good ATK and Crit build with lifesteal, and she should kill him pretty easy? I don’t know the math and I am not in the situation to test this right now. But her passives seems to be insane for that. Has someone some actual experience about that?

  47. Totolas Ticot

    But I guess the post has changed because it shows no more DEF% item.

    I guess my comment below can be ignored now.

  48. Totolas Ticot

    Sorry, French here.

    VIT for VITESSE meaning SPEED.

  49. Joe Dirt

    Totolas Ticot- What is VIT? I’m guessing FW is the jewelry?

  50. Totolas Ticot

    If your ATK champ need to be a little tanky NEVER put ATK ring/amulet/banner (exception for nukers, suicide squad)

  51. Totolas Ticot

    Hi, you often make the same mistakes on builds.

    DEF% is not what you want on Dark Elhain.

    I have never played her but I can tell you this.
    Please DO NOT equip a main DEF% equip on a champ with 800 DEF or less if it has decent HP base pool.
    Please DO NOT equip a main HP% equip on a champ with 15K HP or less if it has decent DEF base pool.

    An optimized Dark Elhain should be :
    – DC%
    – HP%
    – VIT
    (sub DC% – TC% – VIT – ATK% – DEF% – HP%)

    and FW items :
    – DEF
    – DEF (or DC%)
    – DEF

    If you do the opposite you’ll lose stats.
    All FW main DEF flat is at 5 stars = 788 (98% Elhain based DEF)
    —> With HP% Chest it would be 50% HP + 98% DEF (only main stats).

    Do the opposite :
    All FW main HP flat is at 5 stars = 12196 HP (71% Dark Elhain based HP)
    —> With DEF% Chest it would be 50% DEF + 71% HP (only main stats).

    Yes that is 27% of stats pure LOSS.

    Now you know.

  52. Ayumilove Post author

    @MacDrum: If the champion has low Defense stats, she will be easily 1 hit KO by enemies in higher level dungeons. A balance of the stats is key for survival in late game battle.

  53. Ayumilove Post author

    @Solanis: I have updated Dark Elhain’s Ranking from A to B.

  54. Solanis

    Looks like the rating needs to be adjusted. She’s still listed as an “A” epic which appears to be incorrect

  55. Olly

    Okay so what about Dark Elhain vs Elhain? Do you think it’s worth spending time getting Dark Elhain to 60?

  56. Frank

    and now Kael is the ONLY guy who DOES NOT have an upgraded/corrupted version of himself

  57. MacDrum

    Def gear priority on a low def, high attack, attack based hero? I think not.

  58. Ayumilove Post author

    @OmagaD: If I were the Plarium game developers, I would combine both skills together “Veins of Ice” and “Lethal Winter”. The skill would be described as such “Instantly remove Freeze debuff on this champion, places a Block Debuff for 2 turns and gains an Extra Turn. Resets the cooldown of Death’s Majesty.”

  59. OmagaD

    Still funny how I believed this to be the champ to counter Tormin, yet her skill sets only triggers Tormin further and if you are lucky, maybe you get 1x A2 per fight. It feels bad that she has 1 turn cooldown for both passives, and once they trigger, the buff she casts on herself gets her another freeze from Tormin. It happens so fast in fights that at first made me believe her passives are not working.

  60. Darkjokerr

    Every time Ice Golem freezes someone on your team it procs her Lethal Winter skill. So you can guarantee she will be doing extra hits multiple times.

  61. Ayumilove Post author

    @derp: How does Dark Elhain help you in dealing the boss and his sidekicks in Ice Golem dungeon? Are the minions still alive when performing Freeze or they are defeated when the boss casts his freezing effect?

  62. derp

    Why not a 5 * for ice Golem ?
    she be nuking like every other second 🙂

  63. Dave Astle

    @Belenos: She has Decrease Speed on her A2.

  64. Belenos

    why have you put accuracy banner on the equipment guide? like she dont get any debuff to apply ? oO

  65. Deathlock

    Not sure how this champion is ranked ‘A’. Good champion to counter freeze buff and probably not worth getting warmaster on CB since this champion does not have special buffs like poison, etc., but getting flawless execution for the extra critical damage.

  66. Blyatmaniac

    Her main purpose is to counter Tormin, that’s how I see it.

  67. Legna

    Hi, how can this char be in “A” rank with such stars in all parts of the game ? 4 stars is the max she have, for an epic character who need books to raise skills. I thought it would be B or C rank, not much ?

  68. Ninefaps

    So sir Nicholas is Gandalf and they went on a grand quest?

  69. Aleistar

    Could we potentially start to see booking recommendations Ayumilove? I’d like to see some suggestions on whether or not a champ should be booked.

  70. Ayumilove Post author

    @Schrumpelhut: Please clear the Internet browser cache for this page to view the Dark Elhain video on this page 🙂

  71. Schrumpelhut

    the champion isnt in the video at all or am i mistaken?!??!?!??!

  72. Ayumilove Post author

    @Exeon: Thanks for highlighting! I have re-updated Dark Elhain ratings to reflect based on her skills as previously its was incorrect.

  73. Exeon

    @Ayumilove 5 stars for CB? Does she do something special in CB that I’m not aware about? She has no poisons, debuffs or buffs to bring to CB and has no giant slayer either.

  74. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tom: The page will be updated as soon as there are new info on Dark Elhain. You could share your preliminary experiences about this champion such as how well does she work for you in specific or all areas.

  75. Tom

    I know she’s a new champ, but can we see an update for this page? Just got her and I haven’t seen any reviews anywhere else either, but you’ve got a frozen banshee/gravechill video here atm so I’m assuming this needs to be updated. I have a feeling shes pretty good in the arena as she’s unfreezable?
